Investigation: Train victim identified The body of a man who died after he was run over by a train early Sunday morning has been identified, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday. He is Joseph A. Pfeifer, 26, Lee’s Summit, Mo. Pfeifer was lying about 1:45 a.m. on Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad Tracks just west of East 1750 Road when he was run over by a westbound Amtrak train, sheriff’s officers said. The man was seen by train crewmen, but they were unable to stop the train in time. An investigation of the incident is continuing, but it is being considered an accident at this time, Lt. Kathy Tate said. “Why he was there, we don’t know,” Tate said. __________________________ Tribute: Fire & Medical vehicles display memorial ribbons Colored ribbons are waving from the antennae of Lawrence fire trucks and ambulances in special tribute to emergency service personnel in New York and Washington, D.C. Red, blue and black ribbons were attached to Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical vehicles Wednesday, Deputy Chief Mark Bradford said. The red signifies the fire and medical services, and blue signifies police services, Bradford said. The black is a memorial to those killed Tuesday in the terrorist attacks in the two cities, he said. “This is something that may catch on around the state,” Bradford said. Lawrence Police also wore black mourning bands across their badges Wednesday. No decision has been made about how long the ribbons will be displayed, Bradford said. __________________________ Found: Missing teen home, safe A 14-year-old Lawrence girl reported missing by her mother earlier this week is back home, safe and sound. Megan Latulippe returned home about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, her mother, Vicki Musser said. “She was tired and hungry,” Musser said. “We’re so happy to see her.” Musser called police Monday to report her missing daughter. She at first thought Megan had run away from home because of some arguments they’d had. Musser, however, became worried that someone might have been holding Megan against her will. That wasn’t the case. The girl had been with some other people in Tonganoxie who had taken her in, Musser said. After a story appeared about Megan in Tuesday’s Journal-World, Musser received numerous calls and offers of help, she said. “We got great cooperation from the Police Department,” Musser said. “We got a lot of support from a lot of wonderful people. We were surprised at how many people said they wanted to help. This is a great community.” __________________________ Gasoline costs: Pump Patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.599 at Zarco 66, 1500 E. 23rd Street, Miller Mart, 19th Street and Haskell Avenue; and Conoco, 23rd and Harper Streets.
